Play episode

In a statement released by the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department, the boil water advisory that parts of Detroit as well as Hamtramck and Highland Park has been lifted by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.

Per the statement, in part, below:

The low-water pressure resulted from a problem at the Water Works Park distribution facility operated by the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA). The areas which were affected by the advisory were: McNichols south to the Detroit River and Linwood east to Conner.

The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) received a statement released from GLWA today indicating that the most recent round of testing shows no bacterial contamination in Detroit’s water supply. Two rounds of multiple samples were tested by GLWA indicating the water meets the Safe Drinking Water Act. According to the statement:

“The second round of test results taken by the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) related to the February 28, 2017, boil water advisory have come back clear. Given that both sets of test results have proven that there was nothing wrong with the water, GLWA has made the recommendation to the impacted communities that the boil water advisory can be lifted.”
